Vacations are grand things. If you do them right, they are enjoyable and carefree. The secret: don't do anything. Seriously. Working vacation is an oxymoron. This is a time to reconnect with yourself, find out who you really are as opposed to the facade of a drone you carry off day in and day out. The lack of commitments is a dream, albeit a short one. It's ok not to accomplish anything. All the tasks you left behind will still be there. Now is the time to ponder, contemplate. Wander through your mind and rummage a bit. There's no pressure. I want to go away for a day or two, take the train, stay at a hotel. I need to disconnect from my current surroundings--if only for a while.
